copy cat

Faux Fur Vest- Vintage; Striped Top & Heels- Thrifted; Blouse- Smart Set; Corduroy Pants- Gap (Swapped); Necklace- Macy's; Nail Polish- Posh by Revlon
 Does this outfit look familiar? That's because it was brought to you by the lovely Brett and Shea, two of my favourite bloggers:


 Wait a second are Brett & Shea wearing the exact same striped top? Looks like great minded fashionistas think alike!

You may have noticed that I look a little sleep-deprived in these pictures, that's because they were taken at 8 a.m. this morning before work.  It's dark by the time I get home and the indoor photo-shoots are lacking so I thought why not take them before work? Although I loved this plan, the man wasn't too keen so early morning photoshoots may be a delectable rarity!



{Today's outfit combines the Wednesday & Thursday prompts of Megan & Keely's fashion challenge because I have a non-fashion related post lined up for tomorrow!}


You didn't think I walked to work in pointy toed heels and with just a faux fur vest to keep me warm did you? Not this Canadian gal, I layered up and wore my boots for the 5 minute stroll to my job (now if that's not a desirable commute, I don't know what is!

Coat, Scarf & Gloves- Gap; Boots- Thrifted

Where do you gather inspiration from? Celebrities, magazines, fellow fashion blogs, or all of the above?

  4. Five minute stroll? Jealous. I used to live in a small town where everything was a five minute stroll. Might be the only thing I miss about the town!

  14. Love that you did both days! the fur vest looks excellent over your coat. I also like that you mixed things up with the green. I'm actually getting a little envious of everyone with snow right now. I miss my sweaters!

  16. most of my inspiration comes from fellow fashion bloggers... like your shoes right now, i'm loving them and am inspired to get myself a pair of blue shoes too!

  17. Pinterest, it's so wonderful. I "shop" for free inspiration there. And other bloggers. It's funny that the gals are wearing the same top. Your fur vest looks really chic, goes well with bright pink or dark color striped top. I like that green shirt peeping out from under. You did a good with the layering!

  20. I was going to say you looked gorgeous, and you say you were sleep deprived? Noooo! You look amazing! So elegant! I did love the blue shoes, but the boots too!
    Guess what I was doing some minutes ago, selecting boots to take with me!

  21. I love your pink coat! That bright color must help you get through the dreary winter months. I get most of my fashion ideas from bloggers like you. :)

  22. This is an awesome vest! I've seen black faux fur vests on so many bloggers lately that I really want one. Mine is brown. I love it over the coat and am envious-- whenever I do that I look like a sheep, hahaha.

  26. You took these at 8am? You look fabulous! I really love the fur vest layered over the striped top, layered over the button-down. Super-chic! I draw inspiration from other bloggers more than even celebrities - it is more true to everyday life.

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
